Hardware: ADSL Physical Port for Small ASG's (RJ11)
nowadays, the typical installation of ADSL is ADSL router which you plug the RJ-11 Jack in for ADSL service, and you have to configure the ADSL router with the authentication credentials, you have to install the ASG behind this device which makes:
1- double NAT traffice
2-- if you want to make port forwarding, you have to configure the two boxes
3- if An ISP want to install the small box on SOHO customer premises, and a remote management /remote SSH is required for a technical support, you have to create a port forwarding rule on the ADSL router.
In summary, it could be one box called ADSL UTM. which can be very easy for the ISPs to install for the customers and have a technical support for these boxes.

I use the Sangoma S518 at home but it would be nice to have it integrated into Astaro.
Hi Angelo, i override this, it is actually a good request, and yes there are hardware limitations that need to be overcome, but i still want to track how many customers would want that.

Adding a built-in DSL modem which would work with all providers as needed presents a technical limitation. Hence we'll decline this feature as Astaro isn't designed to be an on-premise modem.

It is a great feature that would give a push into SMB especially many competitors have the same ADSL port on small models.
Will become a killer feature for sure - SOHO market would love to have somthing like this...

Note that at least some DSL routers can be configured to just act as a DSL modem, which might be a usable work-around for the time being. This will of course not work if you want to use any of the other features of the router, like e.g. WLAN
Yes this would be nice.
An ASG110 with a homeuser license on the box for at home would be very nice. I would buy the box! Maybe the IP restriction should be changed to 20 IPs (there is another feature request).
